ERKKI MELARTIN: Works for mixed and female choir

The Helsinki Chamber Choir will continue its project of recording the complete a cappella choral works of Erkki Melartin for YLE, the Finnish Broadcasting Company. The choir will also present all of this music in a series of concerts. Spanning several years, the project has revealed the sheer breadth and variety of Melartin's choral output: his oeuvre encompasses art songs, stage music, cantatas, hymns, pedagogical works, songs commissioned by working communities and associations, and a fine body of patriotic music too. This year, our programme features a large quantity of previously unpublished works, especially engraved and type-set for the project. The programme also features all of Melartin's works for female voices.
